The National's Peter Mansbridge talks with Geddy Lee about Clockwork Angels

A funny thing happened after we were together for about 20 years. Where most bands start to break up, we were kind of becoming intrigued with staying together, because so few stay together, and we wanted to see what the fruits of a long-term, good relationship could do. So here’s a band 38 years on, and we are pushing it. We’re trying to see where we can go as a band.

Classic Rock interviews Geddy Lee on the making of Clockwork Angels

Classic Rock recently interviewed Rush’s Geddy Lee about the band’s latest release Clockwork Angels. In this fan pack video, he talks about the mixing process, working with producer Nick Raskulinecz, how Neil Peart’s approach to recording drums was different for this album, and why “The Garden” is his proudest songwriting accomplishment.

Enjoy!

We just kind of figure that our fans would rather see us up there with our technology rather than see us fill up the stage with sidemen.

We’re pretty fortunate that we’ve been able to stay together and we still like each other and we still have so much fun together… We do really enjoy what we do together. It’s not a pretense. I think that’s what fails a lot of bands. They really don’t like each other anymore, their egos have clashed numerous times, and they are just doing it to make some money.
